Thanks for the overwhelming support and we’re sorry if you didn’t get a chance to order. REVHQ is putting up their copies of our new releases Friday, Dec 9th (today).

YOUNGBLOOD MEGA PRE-ORDER NOW

PRE-ORDERS
After 8 months of painstaking preparation, over-thinking and all of the usual delays which have become standard for Youngblood, we are proud to finally present our Fall 2011 releases. Although these records have been floating around at shows for a few months, all four are officially out 12/13/11 and we are taking pre-orders NOW.

Our distributor, REVHQ will start taking orders this Friday and will begin shipping immediately. We here at YBHQ will be filling all orders over the week between Christmas and New Years.

YOUNGBLOOD BANDCAMP LAUNCHED
We’ve had a Bandcamp in the works since September and we are excited to finally launch it. Big thanks to Richmond’s own Sykes for doing an awesome job with it.

The idea for our Bandcamp is to serve as a steady, permanent place to stream our music. Right now we have the 2011 releases up and will be adding all of our back catalog little by little. Check it out and spread the word!

Stream all four records on our Bandcamp here.

A TON OF STUFF IN THE WEBSTORE
In addition to the records below we have also put in the store the Final Pressing of Justice “Escapades” LP, a bunch of new shirts, two sick silk-screened posters, some smaller packages and one really crazy package.

NO TOLERANCE, POLICE & THIEVES, FACE REALITY AND GIVE

YB-36: No Tolerance “No Remorse, No Tolerance”
Two years in the making, No Tolerance storm through with 6 songs of Boston Straight Edge.


YB-37: Face Reality “s/t”
Detroit’s Own Face Reality return with their second EP and debut for Youngblood Records. Face Reality cite Warzone, Turning Point, Youth Of Today and Mouthpiece as influences and they’ve been steadily working towards becoming the Straight Edge powerhouse that they are now.


YB-38: Give “Flower Head”
Give return with another incredible offering in their series of singles. Along with this record, Give have released singles with Deranged, React!, Triple B and Painkiller Records. We are proud to be among the labels to bring you Give.


YB-34: Police & Thieves “Fracturing”
Washington, D.C.’s Police & Thieves are back with seven new songs of fast melodic hardcore combining influences from their hometown with elements of post punk. Having just as much in common with Dag Nasty and Marginal Man as well as later era Seaweed and Samiam.

2011 Showcase Soon!

WE ARE DONE TAKING WILL CALL TICKETS BUT YOU’LL BE ABLE TO GET IN AT THE DOOR. PLENTY OF TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR…See you there.

Check out the following tracks from our upcoming releases:

  • Police & Thieves “Urgency Of Now”
  • No Tolerance “Empty Words”
  • Face Reality “Open Your Eyes”
  • Dividing Lines 12″ EP Pre-Order

    Sacred Love’s “Dividing Lines” has been in the works for a long time. This EP was recorded and mastered late Summer 2010 and we rushed to make a limited pressing for the Youngblood Records 2010 Showcase in October.

    Since then it has (mostly) laid dormant for the last seven months which is a damn shame because this EP is nothing short of incredible. No matter because it is finally seeing the light of day once and for all on June 21st.

    Still a new band, Sacred Love continue to take giant steps forward with every recording. This 5-song, one-sided 12″ EP showcases their ever-growing ability and massive potential. We are very proud to bring you this release!

    We have begun taking pre-orders for this record. Everyone who pre-orders will be emailed a code to instantly download a digital copy of the EP. Click here to preview all 5 tracks.

    Track Listing for “Dividing Lines” 12″/Digital:
    01. What’s Left Of This World?
    02. Riot Dogs (Molon Labe)
    03. WH II
    04. Dividing Lines
    05. Mirage

    “Dividing Lines” kicks off a slew records and is the first of our Summer 2011 releases. A New Era.

    Youngblood Welcomes Face Reality!

    We have some exciting plans and a lot of releases slated for 2011 so it’s time to get moving and welcome a new band to the label…

    Detroit’s Own Face Reality formed in early 2008. After recording a demo and their 2009 debut 7″ entitled “Positive Change” (Dead End Records) they buckled down for most of 2010 to write and record a six-song EP of incredible Straight Edge hardcore.

    Face Reality cite Warzone, Turning Point, Youth Of Today and Mouthpiece as influences and they’ve been steadily working towards becoming the powerhouse that they are now. We are very honored to welcome another great band to the Youngblood roster.

    Spring 2011 will see the release of Face Reality’s eponymous 7″ EP on Youngblood Records. Click here to listen to “Seeker” from the EP.

    “We’ll stick together through the hard times.”
    – Face Reality, Detroit Straight Edge
